Welcome to Mrs Eaton's Class 6E
It's the Summer term and your last one at Much Wenlock Primary school! We have lots to look forward to - we just need to get the SATs out of the way! The fun starts with Arthog in the last week of the first half of the Summer term! After this, we will be busy fund raising for the end of year 6 trip; enjoying the trip; practising for the year 6 play and attending crucial crew!
Our topic this term is ancient Egypt.
In Science this term we are learning about light and shadows, animals and other humans, which includes learning about how blood flows around the body; the impact of exercise on the way our bodies function; the purposes of nutrients; how the digestive system works; the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on the way our bodies function.
Tolerance and Resilience are our themes for SMSC this term.
We will be continuing our PE sessions on Friday afternoons with Mr Hulme. This will consist of outdoor activities such as Tennis, Rounders or Cricket. Please ensure your PE kit remains in school from Monday to Friday every week and you have the correct school PE kit of white T shirt, dark bottoms and a pair of trainers, as you never know when we might do a cheeky PE session!
A word about SATS...
I know many of you will be anxious about the upcoming SATs and preparing for secondary school, but you have worked so, so hard, so let's give the final push and show everyone just how brilliant you are!
A note for Parents/Carers...
Please support your child in encouraging them to read as often as possible, recording any reading in their Reading Log book, this includes newspapers/comics.
Children will continue to receive homework on Punctuation/Grammar and Maths every Wednesday, which is due in on Monday mornings. After SATs this will not be as intense. Please encourage your child to complete their homework on a Wednesday or a Thursday night so that if they have any problems completing it, they can ask myself or Mrs Hawthorn for help before it is due in on a Monday morning.
We are continuing with our spelling scheme: ‘Read Write Inc.’
To support their learning of spellings, the children will be given two spelling books to practise their spellings for the week: one to be kept in school for morning spelling practice each day, the other to be brought to school each Monday to stick in the new weekly spelling grid, then returned home to practise spellings at home each night. Each book will have a grid where children can practise their spellings using a 'look, cover, write, check' method. On Friday they will receive a test on a random selection of these words. Please encourage your child to bring their 'Home spelling book' home every Monday and to practise their spellings each evening using the 'look, cover, write, check method.'
Many thanks for all your support. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and see me.
